Red Ryukin Goldfish Has Large Lump On Side
I have had my ryukin goldfish (3") Thomas for 7 months now. He has survived so many things, ick, dropsy, fin rot, etc. But now he has a large lump on his side. He seems perfectly fine, swimming, eating and it's not getting any larger, it might even be getting smaller. I just want to clarify what this lump is. I read it could be a tumor, bacterial infection or a fish pimple (???).
Tank Size: 56 gal.
Last Water Change: 5 days ago (10 percent)
Other Inhabitants: Newton (4") calico Ryukin goldfish (quite healthy, has never contracted a disease) and Gary (mystery snail - 1.5")
Filtration: 400 gph Aqueon quiet filter (which isn't really quiet)
Tank is planted. Posted via Mobile Device
